MUS 225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

I walked into this class with previous knowledge of DAWs and digital production on a professional level. Don't take this course if you are someone like me, seeking to explore programs and music in further depth. Not saying she is bad teacher, but she does display some lack of knowledge and is very dictative on how you write music, which baffles me.

MUS140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: C-

Shes not a teacher I would recommend, if you are really interested in taking piano. I started this class with a huge interest in learning, and ended highly disappointed. Her class is depressing.

MUS105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Easy, self explanatory. You have to be willing to learn to do well. Most of the students needed it as a credit and barely did any of the extra credit and homework. She laughs at students who have a hard time understanding, not cool. She is helpful and lenient. Class participation is a MUST and allowed THREE absences then she will deduct points.

mus225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof was very caring and actively uses the technologies she presented. Music Dept didnt order our software so she had to throw out the syllabus for a month and taught composition instead, which confused some students. I got a lot from the class though - it was a good introduction to the technology plus some interesting composition basics.

MUS225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof Moorman is caring, and very familiar with the technologies presented. I was in the first class offered- she had to throw out the syllabus for a month because the dept wouldnt buy the software. So she taught us some composition then, but it caused confusion for a few students. Still a good class, and provides a useful introduction.

MUS225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

AWFUL! She doesn't know what she teaches. Very ineffective use of class time. You can slack off and still get a C, but if you are student who normal like to work for A or B & want to learn & be stimulated DO NOT TAKE HER MUS 225 CLASS. She's rude & defensive & scream at student. Disorganized, lost student work, forgot important class materials.

MUS225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is not suited to be a teacher. Oblivious, doesn't understand/convey material well. Did not convey clear method/outline for grading UNTIL AFTER projects were turned in, but held us responsible anyway for what she did not tell us/show us how to do. Ambiguous, rude, laughs & walks away when she doesn't know how to do something. Highly ineffecive.

MUS105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I thought the comment about her not taking it seriously is highly unfair. She tends to laugh to herself to hide her frustration with students who don't do their homework or study. If you're 12 weeks into the semester and you still haven't grasped stuff from the beginning then that's your problem and not hers. Seeing the kind of "effort" some stude

MUS105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She was pretty nice at first, but when you start to learn more and the work gets harder she expects you to know everything right away. if you don't understand she will repeat, but with attitude. she kind of talks down to you at times. but if you go to her for tutoring she is so helpful. its weird..

MUS102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The class was not very interesting but she is a super helpful professor. The class is writing intensive and she takes in to consideration that people have lives outside of the classroom. She helps in anyway that she can. If you can take her go for it!!!

MUS 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is very easy and helpful. I didn't know how to play piano and after the basic music with Prof. Moorman i can play songs on my keabord without difficulties. One thing is that you have to study and do your homeworks. She likes students who show an interest for a music. But if you don;t like music you will never take this class, will you? :-)

mus 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Moorman is okay,but she has some issues which a professor like that, should not be teaching. She makes you feel disrespected when talking to her, either of a situation or just asking her a question,because she giggles and laughs for every thing. She don't take things seriously when talking to her.

Piano1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I could have took the book and learned everything at home. Professor is nice at times but does have an attitude. Almost as if she looks down on the student at times. Its a waste of time and money.

MUS 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was an okay class only because I enjoy playing the piano. However, I did not appreciate Prof Moorman's constant attitude. She was not willing to be helpful, and gave an unfair grade. Shes the reason I'm not taking Piano II.
